Although I have a lot of drops and dangles, years of wearing heavy earrings and an allergy to nickel did a number on my earlobes so studs are the most comfortable to wear. My 9mm akoyas on the lower right are from PP. The 6mm akoyas with the little diamonds were given to me by ex-husband #2. I've probably only worn them a few times because they're just too dainty for me. The 7mm akoyas were given to me by my parents either in high school or college. The big studs on the top came from a Chinese vendor on eBay. They were sold as SS pearls, but are either FW or shell pearls. Doesn't matter, they were cheap and I wear them a lot, especially when traveling. Coming home from Paris this spring, when I removed my earbuds as the plan descended, one of them came out and rolled down the aisle. Luckily, the FA was just walking by me and was able to retrieve it.
Hello everyone, looong time lurker, first time poster here. Here are my favorite studs: tiny freshwaters (around 4,5 mm), Mikimoto akoyas (around 7 mm), dark Tahitians from Kamoka (9 mm) and lighter Tahitians from Pearlparadise (9-10 mm). I would like to expand my collection with less "classic" studs - Jeg your keshi studs look amazing, I would love to know where you got them!
Hello Azra- glad you decided to post! The smallest, dark, keshi pair is from Kamoka, the silver blue Tahitian pair is from Maui Divers, Hawaii. The white pair to the left is from an Etsy shop located in Australia. I’m sorry I can’t remember the name, it was a random find. The white pair to the right is from a special sale, and now that I think of it, I think they are freshwater keshi because I don’t remember paying big $$ for them. I really wear the keshi posts a lot- I think you will like them!
